open window (haiku 10528)


through open window

persistent wasp buzzes in –

ready for the kill

april teases (haiku 10527)


april teases us

with showers that never come;

lets the dust settle

made in italy (haiku 10524)


made in italy

unglazed terracotta pots

from one earth only

heat haze (haiku 10523)


jam muffled sound drowns

traffic outside; spring heat haze

enters hotting up

favourite smell (haiku 10521)


sweet cuttings release

gardeners’ favourite smell

and hayfever hell
